An application will come very soon!
Ergogan of Turkey wants to block Finland and Sweden from joining NATO. He is getting more like Putin by falsely claiming that they are supporting terrorist groups, like the Kurds (really?).
The world is finding out that Russia’s army isn’t that big or great.
Welcome to the party.

Strange, how Agolf Twitler wanted to DESTROY NATO, and now MORE COUNTRIES want to join.
As the “fickle finger of fate” draws ever closer to the big red button.
Seems you can’t trust a former KGB guy, who’s now russki president. Well, never saw that coming.
Finland and Sweden see the writing on the wall, only under collective protection “might”.. they be safe from Russian invasion. A big “might”, NATO is not too keen on taking on Russia either.
Finland’s problem (potentially) is that it was until about 100 years ago part of Russia, as an “autonomous grand duchy”. No time like the present to set about stitching the old Empire back together.
Finland the country that gave the world amazing snipers, and Sweden, brings high-tech to the table
I processed the picture before I processed the words. I saw two women asking for backup who are being shadowed by a giant man wielding a bloody club, and expected it to be about Roe vs. Wade.
It’s a good cartoon, but I still wonder about the choice to portray both Sweden and Finland as women; both countries have male presidents at the moment, and three of the four NATO representatives are identifiably men (I can’t identify the fourth one way or the other). It was presumably a conscious choice on Breen’s part, but it adds an element that seems out of place to me.
All russia has are dumb and nuclear bombs now.
… and looking at the upkeep of the vehicles that they are using, the nuclear ones probably won’t explode.
After losing a third of their already-anemic military power, the size of that club is hardly an indicator of their ability to attack Finland, which has been preparing for many, many decades of possible invasion. Inclusion of Finland and Sweden would be a huge blow to Putin, gambling that his manipulation of tЯц☭p and the GOP’s ongoing attempts to seize power in a coup emboldened him to attack Ukraine, thinking it would weaken NATO.
Instead, Biden has strengthened NATO resolve and gathered no less than 40 nations to confront Russia with crippling sanctions, including a total embargo of their only real resource, oil and gas.
A two-thirds vote in the U.S. Senate would be required for us, as a NATO member, to include Sweden and Finland. Many of the pro-Putin anti-American GOP Senators might not vote for our best national interests – they’ve done so many times before.
Who advised Putin that a hostile military invasion of Ukraine was a good idea? Are they still alive? Just wondering.
With NATO, you must ask to join. With the NEW Russian Empire, you must fight to avoid becoming a member.
Finland’s PM told Putin, “You are to blame”!
Standing up to a bully!
